This is a new service - your feedback will help us to improve it.

If you have a learning disability, you might face challenges in finding paid work. We have compiled the below guides and support to accessing work.


MENCAP have created four easy read guides covering the following topics for people looking for a job:

  • finding a job or work experience
  • application forms and CVs
  • going to a job interview
  • starting work

You can download the easy read guides on the MENCAP website. You might want to go through them with a friend or family member.

You can also find out more about how MENCAP's employment services might be able to help you.


Support to work is a free online and telephone support programme for people with disabilities in England and Wales, who are looking for paid work. This is not a face-to-face service, so may not be right for everyone.
